How are we saved?

Ask the question, how are we saved?
-Is it because “we” Believed?
We are not saved because of anything we have done.

We are saved based on God’s goodness, not based on our performance.
There is nothing you can do to save yourself from eternal destruction.
Ephesian 2:
Ephesians 2:16–18 NLT
16 Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death. 17 He brought this Good News of peace to you Gentiles who were far away from him, and peace to the Jews who were near. 18 Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.

We are saved because God extended His favor to us as a King. He extended His love to us as a Father.


Charis is the greek word for grace.
Charis is a person who has been shown favor
When God showed us Charis we stopped trying to prove our worth to him.
When God showed us Charis we were given “worth” as a gift not by earning it.
We do cannot earn God’s favor or Charis by church attendance, daily prayer time, being good, and not sinning.
Why? because we cannot earn what has been given as a gift.

No More Shame, No More Condemnation, No More Guilt

Romans 8:1 NLT
1 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:1
Romans 8:1 KJV 1900
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
The second line was added by the translators, but it was never in the original letter.
Why? Because it is hard for us to see that

We feel guilt because that is the effect of sin.

Because of Gods Grace We Are Accepted

1 John 3:1 NLT
1 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.
